AJK Design Studio launched “Moroccan”, a line of metal grilles, registers and panels said to be inspired by 13th century Moorish tiles as seen in the souks and mosques of Marrakech. Manufactured in the US, the pieces are cut using laser and water-jet technology. These are available in steel, brushed or polished stainless steel and brushed of polished brass. Along with the metallic finishes, the grilles also come in 10 powder-coated colors or primed for a paint-to-match option. There are currently 12 different designs available, all suitable for walls, ceilings and floors.
Oakland-based textile designer Annie Kator launched AJK Design Studio in spring 2015 with a line of custom interior metalwork, following a stint as designer at Maharam Custom Studio.
